Abstract:

Americans prize public library service and see libraries as potential solutions to many communities' most pressing problems, from universal access to computers to the need for better options for keeping teens safe and productive. But few Americans are aware of the increasingly tenuous financial picture faced by many libraries. Public Agenda examines attitudes about libraries in our latest study, "Long Overdue," prepared with support from the Americans for Libraries Council and funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The report includes the results of a national survey of the general public as well as interviews with national and local civic leaders.
